About this course

With only six core subjects, the degree's flexibility allows you to specialise in areas including corporate and financial communication, public relations and communication for social change.

The Master of Communication will build your strengths in understanding the fundamentals of communication in a changing media and industry landscape and provide valuable insight into current trends and practice. You'll choose from a diverse range of electives combined with a core of digital, global and strategic communication.
